Building the next generation of Canadian sport greatness requires commitment, discipline and hard work – and funding, plenty of it.

The Canadian Olympic Foundation aims to support future Olympians and the country’s sport system by raising much needed funds. It has set up an auction – online and live – ahead of the Olympic Hall of Fame induction that includes fantastic experiences and prizes that will bring fans closer to Olympians, while raising money toward future athletic excellence.
